default authentication method with SQL server

Hi guys,

r_orange_1-1661499060957.png

as you can see here, I am trying to create an app within Power BI. The data is coming from an SQL server database. In authentication method there are 3 options: B,W and O. 

Can anyone please tell what those are and when to select what? from my understanding, O is for organizational. Any kind of help would be appreciated.

B = Basic   (SQL server login)

W = Windows (NT credentials)

O = OAuth2  (token based)

 

 

Curious why only the first letter is shown?

 

By the way - Power BI has no concept of "default method" . You need to pick one.
